Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1
In the ongoing global patent battle between Apple and Samsung over smartphones and tablets, a U.S. judge has denied Apple a preliminary injunction that would have temporarily prevented Samsung from selling four of its devices in the United States.
In a ruling issued late Friday, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh decided that allowing Samsung's Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, Droid Charge, and Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices to remain on sale would not harm Apple enough to justify the injunction. She also said such an injunction would likely benefit other gadget makers at Samsung's expense.
In an around-the-world-in-80-lawsuits scenario, Apple has been arguing that Samsung's products infringe its design patents and copy the iPhone and the iPad. Samsung, meanwhile, has fired back with its own patent-related claims against Apple. In addition to the U.S., the battle has touched down in Australia; the Netherlands; Germany; parts of Asia, and France and Italy; among other places.
In a statement about Friday's ruling, Samsung said Koh's decision on the preliminary injunction "confirms our long-held view that Apple's arguments lack merit. In particular, the court has recognized that Samsung has raised substantial questions about the validity of certain Apple design patents. We are confident that we can demonstrate the distinctiveness of Samsung's mobile devices when the case goes to trial next year. We will continue to assert our intellectual property rights and defend against Apple's claims to ensure our continued ability to provide innovative mobile products to consumers."
Koh didn't buy all of Apple's design complaints. For example, she said in respect to smartphones that "a size that can be handheld, a screen that encompasses a large portion of the front face of the smartphone, and a speaker on the upper portion of the front face of the product" are not necessarily aesthetic features but functional ones that would make sense, and be legally allowable, on phones from Apple competitors.
Despite Friday's ruling, Apple could still win the overall lawsuit. Samsung, though, might be able to tweak its gadgets to sidestep the patent issues and continue selling its devices--a strategy the company is currently trying in Germany.
So far, it doesn't appear that Apple has issued an official statement on Koh's refusal to grant the preliminary injunction. Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet referred Reuters to previous Apple statements about the case and told the news agency that Samsung's "blatant copying is wrong."

Tablet Showdown: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Apple iPad 2
Apple's iPad 2 is clearly the market leader, but Samsung has ruffled a few feathers with its upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet — so much so that Apple has blocked it from going on sale in Australia, and forced Samsung to postpone the launch event. So, what's all the fuss about the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and how does it compare to the iPad 2?
For starters, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is thinner and lighter than the iPad 2, despite featuring a larger display. It's also the first Android tablet we've seen that places a huge emphasis on design, both in hardware and software.
With this in mind, how does the SamsungGalaxy Tab 10.1 stack up against the Apple iPad 2 when it comes to specifications?
Apple iPad 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: Specifications
Feature Apple iPad 2 Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Verdict? Operating system (OS) Apple iOS 4 (upgradeable to iOS 5) Google Android 3.1 'Honeycomb' iPad 2 Display size 9.7in 10.1in Galaxy Tab 10.1 Display technology Capacitive LED-backlit IPS Capacitive PLS TFT Draw Display resolution 1024x768 pixels 1280x800 pixels Galaxy Tab 10.1 Multitouch Yes Yes Draw Front camera VGA 2 megapixels Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Rear camera 0.7 megapixels, no flash 3 megapixels, LED flash, autofocus, geotagging Galaxy Tab 10.1 Video recording Yes, 720p HD Yes, 720p HD Draw GPS Yes Yes Draw Internal memory 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB 16GB or 32GB iPad 2 Expandable memory None None Draw Dimensions 241.2 x 185.7 x 8.8mm 256.7.4 x 175.3 x 8.6mm Galaxy Tab 10.1 Weight 607g 565g Galaxy Tab 10.1 Application store Apple App Store Google Android Market iPad 2 Processor Apple A5 dual-core (1GHz) ARM Cortex A9 dual-core (1GHz) Draw RAM 512MB 1GB Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + 3G models Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + 3G models Draw Wi-Fi Yes Yes Draw Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP 3.0 with A2DP Galaxy Tab 10.1 HDMI-out No (Yes, with optional digital AV adapter) No (Yes, with optional HDTV adapter) Draw USB port No No Draw Quoted battery life Up to 10 hours Up to 9 hours iPad 2 Adobe Flash support No Yes Galaxy Tab 10.1
The iPad 2 is faster, lighter and 33 per cent thinner than the original iPad. It weighs 613g, and comes in both black and white models. The curved design of the back of the iPad 2 makes it comfortable to hold, and it is relatively thin given the size of its screen. The iPad 2 is ideal for use in either portrait or landscape layouts, and its built in accelerometer rotates quickly and without delay.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just 8.6mm, thin enough to be described by Samsung as "the world's thinnest mobile tablet". That is ever so slightly thinner than the 8.8mm thick iPad 2. Although a mere 0.2mm doesn't seem like a deal breaker if you're comparing it directly to the iPad 2, the Galaxy Tab 10.1's weight of just 565g is a big deal. The lightweight design makes it easy to use single-handed, and very comfortable to hold for long periods.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet is constructed largely from plastic, but still manages to feel extremely well built. The materials used are of a high quality, right from the glossy black bezel surrounding the display, to the soft-feeling, rubber-style plastic that adorns the rear, and the stylish curved edges.
Battery life and availability
Samsung promises 9 hours of video playback time before the Galaxy Tab 10.1's battery runs out. The iPad 2 offers a slightly better figure of 10 hours.
The Apple iPad 2 is available through Apple retail stores and select authorised resellers. The iPad 2 is slightly cheaper than the original iPad, starting at $579 for the entry-level 16GB Wi-Fi version.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was initially expected to launch sometime in August, but the lawsuit by Apple has meant Samsung has been forced to postpone the unveiling. "A Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the Australian market will be released in the near future," the company said in a recent statement. Pricing and carrier details have yet to be announced.

Technology News: Facebook Will IPO as Early as April 2012
Facebook will make its long-anticipated move to go public between April and June 2012, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal on Monday.
The report, which cites “people familiar with the matter,” says that Facebook is considering raising $10 billion in an IPO that could value it at more than $100 billion. This is consistent with a report in June that used the same eye-popping number of zeros to describe Facebook’s expected valuation.
If realized, the valuation would make Facebook’s IPO one of the largest in history — more than four times as big as Google’s $23 billion IPO in 2004, and likely one of the 10 largest IPOs of all time.
While the first rumors of Facebook’s impending IPO predicted that the company would go public during the first quarter of 2012, recent reports had suggested that the offering had been pushed back to “September or later.”
The Wall Street Journal‘s sources cautioned that Facebook has not made any final decisions in its internal discussions about the timing of its filing — and that market conditions will ultimately determine how much money the company seeks and the value of the company.

25 Worst Passwords of 2011, Hackers can easily to break
“Password” ranks first on password management application provider SplashData’s annual list of worst internet passwords, which are ordered by how common they are. (“Passw0rd,” with a numeral zero, isn’t much smarter, ranking 18th on the list.)
The list is somewhat predictable: Sequences of adjacent numbers or letters on the keyboard, such as “qwerty” and “123456,” and popular names, such as “ashley” and “michael,” all are common choices. Other common choices, such as “monkey” and “shadow,” are harder to explain.

“Hackers can easily break into many accounts just by repeatedly trying common passwords,” Slain says. “Even though people are encouraged to select secure, strong passwords, many people continue to choose weak, easy-to-guess ones, placing themselves at risk from fraud and identity theft.”
- 1. Vary different types of characters in your passwords; include numbers, letters and special characters when possible.
- 2. Choose passwords of eight characters or more. Separate short words with spaces or underscores.
- 3. Don’t use the same password and username combination for multiple websites. Use an online password manager to keep track of your different accounts.
